Would it instead be better to calculate the number (not %) of OOS matriculants / number of OOS applicants?

For example:

-School A has 20 OOS matriculants out of 100 total in the class, with 2,000 OOS applicants. The % OOS matriculants on the AAMC table would be 20%, but the matriculation rate would be 1% for OOS applicants.

-School B has 50 OOS matriculants out of 100 total, but had 10,000 OOS applicants. The OOS percentage shown on the AAMC table would be 50%, but only 0.5% of OOS applicants matriculated.

Would School A in this example be more "OOS friendly" than School B?

Is this a better way to think of the numbers? Or am I thinking of this the wrong way? Perhaps the number of acceptances rather than matriculants might be more useful, but I can't seem to find data for that. Thanks!
